Description:

 International radiation oncologists, surgeons, and scientists comprehensively review the techniques, indications, and results of using intraoperative electrons (IOERT) and high-dose rate brachytherapy (HDR-IORT). State-of-the-art topics range from methods and techniques of treatment and issues of normal tissue/organ tolerance to IORT, to techniques and results by disease-site, as well as future possibilities. The disease-site chapters cover everybody part for which the potential merit of IORT has been demonstrated, with disease-specific treatment factors presented by a radiation oncologist and a surgeon. The diseases range from GI cancers to CNS and breast malignancies. International in authorship and comprehensive in scope, Intraoperative Irradiation:

Techniques and Results offers a cutting-edge resource and reference for surgeons, radiation oncologists, physicists, anesthesiologists, medical oncologists, and all others involved in providing IORT and HDR-IORT procedures and cancer care today.


 Reviews:

“. . . chapters are very well written in a concise manner and include excellent bibliographies. . .a thorough, well written, informative textbook which would be a welcome addition to the radiation and surgical oncologist's reference library. “—Doody’s Health Sciences Book Review Journal “This comprehensive review by internationallyrecognized radiation oncologists, surgeons and scientists likely represents the definitive text on intraoperative irradiation and allied techniques…a useful reference for the dedicated multidisciplinary oncology team, wishing to have a comprehensive review of these techniques (and current results)…The biophysics of a single high dose versus multiple small doses is well covered in this text.”—Canadian Journal of Surgery “…an appropriate resource and reference book. It is intended for surgeons, radiation oncologists, physicists, anesthetists, medical oncologists, and all others involved either in the procedural component of IORT or in the care of patients with cancer.”—Neoplasma
